I just finished my first hammock trip and have a few questions for everyone, but first I want to say I really enjoyed the trip and am looking forward to doing more.
First question is about the levelness of the hammock. Is it important that the tree straps or level with each other? I was slipping to one end of the hammock all night long.
Second question I felt as if the sides of the hammock were crushing in on me all night this could be related to the first issue not sure.
And third I have seen the ridge line tied completely separate from the rest of the hammock rigging did I have mine incorrect being as I had it tied to the hammock tension straps?
I am looking to improve on my setup in time I really just started out and wanted to see if hammock camping was for me. I would have to give it a thumbs up with some minor exceptions mentioned above, however tent camping has caused me to end up scrunched up in the corner of a tent many times as well.
Here are some videos of the trip and hammock setup thanks for the help
